I love Cynthia Rowley's pattern 2497 for Simplicity. I have made it or variations on it several times before, as a dress, top, or short dress/swimsuit cover-up!
It fits pretty well but is lower-cut than I would prefer. I'll have to see if I'm comfortable with wearing it to work as-is!
You can't see the length in these pics but I cut it to the pattern version C. It's a great length. The skirt is fully lined, too.
I love the natural waist! And gathers around the bust.
